down to plinth. Right hand window probably of c.1850-60: a tripartite Doric
plastered rectangular bay with entablature. Glazing bar sashes to first
floor, tripartite to right with stucco dividers. Porch of coupled Roman
Doric columns with triglyph and medallion frieze and modillion cornice, blocking
